Trulia: renters more likely to live in tight spaces than homeowners

Trulia report measured the percentage of renter and owner households who are in a space crunch
  • Los Angeles is the top city for owners and renters in a tight space situation, followed by New York City, Anaheim, Riverside and San Francisco.
  • Chicago is the highest ranking Midwest city on the list, although Minneapolis and St. Louis also ranked within the top 25.
  • Houston residents who own are slightly more likely to share a room, ranking no. 5 for the category.

Determining the amount of bedrooms in a home is one of the first decisions buyers and renters have to make, and in some metros it can be hard to find the perfect fit. To help determine which metros are most likely for homebuyers and renters to bunk up in a room, Trulia released a new report, titled the “Bunk Bed Generation.”
